Re: I dont understand
Oct 2, 2000

The question I was referring to was a question I had on severe bloating. I guess it wasn't a clear question. I apologize. I am currently not on any meds, but my stomach has recently been protruding and I am so bloated all the time, even after a bit of water. From what I have read on this forum this all seems to be caused by some medication. But if I am not on any medication what could it be from? I also have a "sore spot" near my belly button, It feels like a very tender spot right under neath my skin, I cant see anything, it feels very sore though. I am scared. I have never been to the doctors regarding my hiv+ status. I dont want to know what is wrong with me.

Response from Dr. Henry

That would be a rare solo manifestation of HIV infection but is worth resolving by discussing with your doctor. KH
